Wearing white to a wedding might be seen as a guest faux-pas, but it’s become something of a trend within the royal family: Pippa Middleton wore a formfitting white dress to sister [Kate] (/about/kate-middleton)’s nuptials in 2011—and seven years later, the Duchess of Cambridge pulled a similar move, wearing a familiar-looking dress in a similar hue on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s big day.
For the Royal Wedding, Kate Middleton opted for a collared, cream-colored coat with a soft-yellow hat. If the outfit looks familiar, that’s because it’s quite similar to one of the Duchess’ favorite Alexander McQueen looks, which she’s already worn on two—yes, two!—occasions.

Early reports speculated that Middleton was re-wearing an Alexander McQueen dress, previously spotted at Princess Charlotte’s christening in 2015 and at the Queen’s birthday festivities in 2016, to the nuptials of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. (Glamour has reached out to Alexander McQueen for confirmation, and will update this story when we hear back.)
Here’s Middleton at her daughter’s christening in 2015.
And at Trooping in Color in 2016.
The silhouette may be in her wheelhouse, but Middleton did spruce up the look with a flower-adorned hat by Philip Treacy. (Such is the custom for royal weddings—attention-getting hats are literally part of the dress code.)
Royal wedding fashion isn’t a category that’s usually considered “relatable,” but Middleton’s apparent decision to re-wear a style she’s already been photographed in at public events strikes us as a pretty down-to-earth move. (Plus, the style spotlight is Meghan’s today!) Of course, the Duchess of Cambridge has been known to do this—and we love her all the more for it.
